Best CDI?? For Rhino 660

Guys I was wanting to get your take on which CDI was the best for the Rhino 660. I have seen the AMR, Blackrhino, and Dynatek. All seem to offer the same stuff. What's your thoughts?

2005 Rhino 660 Camo, Teryx Shocks, 28" Silverbacks (FATS), Blackrhino CDI, 3" Intake Snorkel, 165 Main and 47.5 pilot Jets, Warn RT25, Full Skid Plate set, JBS primary, 14 gram OD weights, Purple Secondary Spring, and more.

Thanks JBS and Rutting Rhino...

I have had the AMR for 4 years with no issues, plus they're the only one with a 2 year warranty, or atleast they used to. I also have their monster oil too.

The Dynatek is the best IMO, lifetime warranty, doesnt get better than that.

We sell the MSD 4240...low cost... 1 year warranty... it is the only one that retains the stock cdi for all starting and running functions...the stock CDI is made by Mitsubishi and it is the highest quality CDI made for the Rhino...even if your MSD 4240 failed you could simply disconnect it and the stock cdi is still right there to run like it did from the factory...

They all have their pros and cons...well the top three anyway... Dynatek, HunterWorks, MSD 4240...and there is also a programmable Dyantek and programmable MSD...there are other brands for which I have nothing good to say so not saying anything...

I always recommend people evaluate their real needs and compare features including price with shipping instead of taking someone's word for what the best one is on the internet...everyone says theirs is best...

Thank you for the good info. I have a Blackrhino right now. Was looking to upgrade it if there is such a thing? Would the MSD 4240 work with the Blackrhino or would it need to be the stock CDI? Would I really get much more out of a programable unit cause I am pretty much stock (engine) except for my clutch.

You are welcome...the MSD 4240 only works with a stock cdi...

Black Rhino has sold more than one brand with their stickers on them...the first brand was pro-comm...you know you have one if when you put it in reverse and floor it the ignition cuts out real fast...if it hauls ass and you have to let off the throttle it is a Dynatek...

If you are not having any problems with it then leave it alone...you are not going to get a power gain from switching CDIs if that is what you are thinking...

IMO...the ONLY reason to go to a programmable ignition curve is for running high compression pistons...no reason to do that on a stock piston running on pump gas...others can disagree...that is fine with me...I don't sell them and I don't care...

Having to figure out an ignition curve for an internally stock motor is a waste of time and money IMO...

If you don't like the CDI you have for any reason...don't buy the MSD 4240 unless you have the stock CDI to use with it...if you need an new CDI and don't have the stock get an Dynatek from Nick or a HunterWorks tri-fire from Todd...

For anyone just wanting the most bang for the buck who has the stock CDI...especially with an internally stock motor the MSD 4240 is a great product...we have a lot of happy customers...

Don't ask scottyk where he got his...

You are welcome...

What you really need is a fuel kit and a pilot jet...maybe a jet kit depending on what you have...

I have a Jet Kit but haven't installed it yet... Will it really help with power? It runs good and smooth.

DIY Dyno-tuning Rhino 660

Based on your signature I would say no... the jet kit you got I don't know what is is but it is not ours...

You have a "snorkel" ...the devil is in the details but typically the last thing you want to do with a snorkel is have leaner needle and stock pilot jet...

You need to tune your main jets for increased air flow at the intake/exhaust...and in some cases to compensate elevation and temperature...

All a stock motor with stock intake/exhaust needs is a bigger pilot jet...if you bought a dyno-jet kit it has a leaner needle and no pilot jet...all bad...the exact opposite of what you want...

I recommend at least increasing your air flow by running 04 style and with a bigger pilot jet...use the main jets in your kit you already have...

When I said fuel kit I meant fuel delivery kit...we have several...some come with fuel pumps...
